Welcome to Year 1 who are taught by Mrs Davies-Muir and who is supported by Mrs Way in the mornings.
Our classroom is a fun and busy place to be, full of our achievements and creations. This is where we share our news and key activities with you. Scroll down to find out what our latest achievements are and for useful information such as letters and topic overviews.
In Literacy this half term we are focusing on poetry. We have begun with the works of Michael Rosen and have enjoyed listening to one of his poems most days. The children have even watched him perform his poems online, which bring has brought them to life in the classroom.
This week we started with a poem called Lost. Before the children heard this poem they responded to Chris Riddell’s illustration and imagined what the mouse was thinking using freeze framing. This inspired their thought bubbles shown underneath.
Our books this week are: A Great big Cuddle – poems for the very young by Michael Rosen
Michael Rosen’s Book of Very Silly Poems
In Maths, we have been learning the difference between dividing by grouping and sharing.
In Science, we are continuing to learn about plants and their structure.
Firstly, I would like to say well done to Year 1 for an absolutely super performance in the class assembly on Friday. All children remembered their lines and sung beautifully.
This week, we are continuing with our author study, Anthony Browne and reading The Tunnel.
On Monday the children enjoyed helping one of the characters make a decision with the use of a conscience alley. This is a fantastic drama activity that provides the opportunity to analyse a decisive moment in greater detail in order to understand the dilemmas of particular characters.
Year 1 have been exploring the different uses of technology in Computing and used them in science this week to record sound and movement.
Easter Fun in Year 1
The children have been having a fabulous time in our run up to Easter. They have been learning about the Easter story and have had the opportunity to explore this with our visitor from the church, Mr. Gordon Gray.
This week the children have enjoyed taking part in an Easter morning where they made some tasty treats to bring home and beautiful Easter cards. Additionally, they have been delighted to share their beautifully decorated eggs with each other, some of which are pictured below.
Have a lovely Easter!
